In RFC 903 (Reverse Arp Protocol) the statement is made that if
a reverse arp packet is received with a opcode of either 1 or 2
(arp request, arp reply) that this packet can be passed on to the
normal arp code for processing.

My question is, when the normal arp code processes this request and
decides that a reply is necessary, does the data link layer
protocol field contain the value for ARP or RARP? Or for that
matter, does it matter?

Thanks.
